From what you describe, the Dashboard application is functioning as it is designed. Dashboard refreshes widgets when it is activated.
As an aside, I recommend you not try to "save resources" by doing things like this:
I used an application or terminal method as follows to turn it off. (Thus saving me resources)
The resources you may have saved (probably none) are trivial. With a new Mac (you indicate you have one) the internal speeds are far beyond what most people would every utilize. Tinkering with system software will cause problems - at some time in the future.
